We all know about the horrific day on May 24th of this year, when 21 innocent lives were taken in the tragic mass shooting at Robb Elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
The world mourned the loss of 19 young children and two teachers, and it’s certainly not something any of the families of the victims will ever get over.
And at a political rally for Beto O’Rourke’s campaign for governor over the weekend at Moontower Saloon in Austin, Texas, Willie Nelson was there in person to perform some songs and show his support for Beto.
And while on stage, he spotted the family members of Jackie Cazares, one of the young Uvalde victims, in the crowd, and took a moment to honor their daughter and pay tribute to the family.
According to the Houston Chronicle, he walked over to talk to her parents, sharing some very powerful words to try and encourage them in what has undoubtedly been a very hard and traumatic time in their lives, saying:
“Remember, it’s not something you ever get over, but it’s something you will get through.”
While all attendees were clearly at this event to show support for a specific political candidate, moments like these really cut through all of that and remind us that, at the end of the day, no matter who you vote for, we’re all just human beings.
What a moment from the living legend himself, Willie Nelson:
